Default top swap or engine swap

Well i want to change my car to "supercharged" but i was wondering, would it just save time and money to do a motor swap??? I really want to do a top swap for high compression ratios only i know im going to blow my tranny at some point and i still have to wrangle up all of the L67 parts like pully'*, belts, ect, ect...

What do you guys think??

either im doing that or buying a built Grand Prix Daytona from my friend which has intercooler, built tranny, ect..so i know i wont blow it and it runs 11'*!!!!!

Sell your car and buy an SSEi. It'* more cost-effective and you'll wind up with all the extra "bells and whistles" of the SSEi including a better suspension. Search around here too, this topic has been covered in several other threads.

if the only 2 options are what you stated, id go for the gp. however, if you can find a ser 2 L67 that was in an accident, that would be much more cost effective.
